Best way migrating to a new MBP?

Soon I will migrate my files from my current MacBook Pro to the new one ... it's on its way arriving sometime next week ... and in this context I have some questions: what is the best way to do the file migration right: seamless, painless, and with a minimum of interruption?

I have done earlier migrations from one MacBook Pro to another using SuperDuper cloning the entire content, including the OS, applications, bookmarks, cookies, saved passwords for Websites, email accounts/settings and everything else. This has worked without any problems, because the Mac models and the OS were identical.

But this time the new MacBook Pro has different features (like the PrefPanes for the new Trackpad and EnergySaver and other stuff) which would be lost if I simply clone the old content one to the new machine.

I have never used the Migration Assistant and I know it pops up on first boot, should I use that to migrate my files? Will it migrate ALL user settings?

Or should I use SuperDuper and then 'manually' replace new stuff from the new System Restore Disc? I am not sure I would know what would fall into this category ...

Or is there a much better way to achieve all this?

Thank you for your suggestions
